COMACO and the Lundin Foundation: The COMACO Landscape Management Project Environmentalnd Social Management Plan

Community Markets for Conservation (COMACO) is a model for rural development that uses inputs, improved technologies, and markets to help small scale farming communities achieve increased food security and incomes and more effective conservation of the natural resources they live with. The COMACO model works on the premise that households will reduce destructive use of their natural resources if their basic food and income needs are met in ways that remove the need to rely on destructive resource-use practices.
